Città is a design brand from New Zealand that gets inspired by the worlds unique cultures. In their home collections they share a global design story through beautiful home products. The Città Winter Collection 2017 – Elevation – is inspired by the natural wonder of Bolivia. The rugged, raw, and impossibly beautiful nature is translated into bold design with warm, moody and rich colors. Chunky textures, bold shapes and simple geometrics and plaids collide with exaggerated weaves and knits with subtle reference to the 60s. The promo images of this collection are absolutely stunning. The combination of the raw architecture with the cozy textures and warm colours is absolutely perfect and very inspiring.
Yesterday I also posted a beautiful apartment in a mixture of styles. Today I show you this apartment in Gothenburg that is decorated in a beautiful mixture of modern and mid-century design. The apartment is styled with pieces from IKEA to flea market finds which makes the home very personal and stylish (not surprisingly from two people who both work at IKEA). But my favourite part of this home is the stunning green wall in the living room. This shade fits perfectly with the tan leather sofa and adds some colour and warmth to the space.
A new IKEA collection is always reason for celebration. This week IKEA has released the images of the IKEA Stockholm 2017 collection. The Stockholm series is a recurrent collection that keeps changing. This year the collection consist of 46 products that are made of natural and tactile materials such as rattan, blown glass, ash blonde and blue and red velvet. The products range from furniture to colorful fabrics and glassware. You only have to wait a little while, the IKEA Stockholm collection will be in stores april 7.
I’m in love with the home of former model, stylist and blogger Malin Persson. Malin left the hectic life in Italy to set up home in southern Sweden together with her husband and 3 children. Her home has this lovely bohemian style with plenty of space for the kids to play in. From vintage pieces to new decor, everyhting seems to compliment each other perfectly. You can definitely see that it is a house that’s being lived in and therefor it feels very personal and cozy. I’m absolutely in love with this home and I just want to soak into that wonderful copper bathtub. Isn’t it perfect?
I’ve been in love with Lotta Agaton’s home ever since I first set eyes on it. It was probably on instagram that she posted snippets of her moody grey home in Stockholm. Last year the home was photographed by Pia Ulin for Residence Magazine (see those pictures here). Now Lotta has put her home up for sale and again we can swoon at her perfect styling and moody rooms. Not everyone would dare to paint not only the walls but also the ceiling grey. But this home demonstrates how beautiful it can be. Who says that grey is boring?
This home in Australia belongs to designer Margaret Scholley. She founded Alida & Miller Interior Design and together with her daughter they take on design projects in the Byron Bay area. The home’s layout is inspired by her own family, so a large open plan living space, a library and a swing(!) for her grandsons. I love all the textiles, patterns and color that she used in this home. It feels like a truly comfortable family home. A home to be lived in. (Ps: see the mximalist home of her daughter here)
If you’re very keen on privacy for your bedroom, this might not be the best idea. But it does give a small apartment a more spacious feeling if you add a glass wall. These glass industrial walls is something you see a lot in Scandinavian apartment right now, you can see it as well in the apartment I posted earlier this week. It’s really a lovely way to keep the natural light in all rooms and it’s a nice eye catcher. But if you want to have a private bedroom it might be a good idea to add some curtains.
After a holiday in France, Menno and Tessa decided to design and built their own home. The couple mainly used natural materials and added a lot of storage, because with 3 children it’s nice to keep clutter behind doors. The light living space with open kitchen was a priority for the couple. Their trip to France inspired the wooden structure, concrete floor and pebbles in the bathroom. It’s a beautiful light family home with a Scandinavian touch.
Another IKEA post this week after I posted about Piet Hein Eek’s collection on tuesday. IKEA has just released the press images of the new items coming to the stores in february. From furniture to clever to storage solutions, there are some amazing new products coming to IKEA. I made a selection of my favorite items in this collection. The new items will be in stores in february.
Sometimes in these dark winter months all you want is a little light. This apartment in Stockholm is styled by Josefin Hååg and it’s bright in every room. The home is completely decorated in white, grey and black tones which gives the apartment a very serene atmosphere. Perfect if you love light homes, there’s definitely no winter gloom in here!
